Not sure if this is an obscure bug caused by some unfortunate combination of computer hardware and operating system, or whether this is potentially a more general issue, but I have a Lenovo laptop with USB 3.0 ports and USB 2.0 ports. I would expect the USB 3.0 ports to be backwards compatible with the XEM6001 (USB 2.0), and this seems to be generally true…however, every other time that I run my Python script, the ConfigureFPGA() call returns an error. If I run on the USB 2.0 port, no errors.
I’m running an XEM6001 on a Lenovo W530, with Ubuntu 12.04. I’m using the FrontPanel-FC4.0.8.tgz driver/API. Any reason to believe that the FrontPanel-FC4.2.5.tgz version would behave any differently? Any chance of getting native support for Ubuntu?
